About 400 Calories or Less
What's a foodie to do when she passes the 40 mark and her metabolism comes to a screeching halt? (hint...denial did not work !) So I've put together a collection of everyday meals that are simple to make, under 400 calories, yet so savory and delicious that you won't miss your old favorites and standbys. I've tested and tweaked, tested and tweaked and the recipes yield satisfying and scrumptious home cooked foods, because regular 'diet food' just wasn't going to cut it in this house !
If you are cooking for a family, stick to the 400 calories for yourself, but just give larger portion sizes to other family members. I double up dinner for my husband and it is more than enough. That way you are not spending too much time cooking multiple dishes. The family will love these meals !
